Scott Klein is a originally from Elk Grove, Illinois – just outside the Chicago area. As of 2014 he currently resides in Nashville, TN. As a pipemaker one of Scott's biggest influences, and teachers, is Alex Florov. Alex, a wonderful teacher, saw so much potential in Scott that he invited the budding carver to his home workshop as a traditional apprentice to learn the details necessary to carve high-grade pieces. Spending 5 years working alongside Alex, Scott learned an immense amount about the true nature of high-grade craftsmanship.

Scott's pipes are creations that naturally show some influence from his teacher, Alex, but also take inspiration from several Danish and Japanese masters — with a heavy focus on tight tolerances and precision both in shaping and finishing. The briars are left either smooth or sandblasted, and each one is graced with a well-made vulcanite stem and turned tenon. Aside from using the classic black color, he also frequently works with honey-cumberland and other swirled cumberland varieties. Sticking with the belief that less is more, he'll often use subtle accents of horn and other exotic materials to enhance a piece's beauty as well.
